Capella Sydney, housed in the historic former Department of Education building near Sydney Harbour’s Circular Quay, opened its doors in March 2023 as a luxurious cultural immersion. With 192 guestrooms, wellness facilities and exquisite dining venues, it offers a seamless blend of tradition and modernity.

The meticulous restoration and transformation of Capella Sydney’s early 1900s Edwardian Baroque-style building have retained its architectural grandeur, while the interior design by BAR Studio strikes a perfect balance between historical elements and contemporary aesthetics. The guestrooms and suites, spread across eight levels, are beautifully appointed with original craftsmanship details.

Capella Sydney’s central location immerses guests in Sydney’s vibrant heart, with iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge at their doorstep. The hotel also prioritises sustainability, incorporating eco-friendly practices and progressive design elements to minimise its ecological impact.
